Gaining Strength One Day at a Time!

Hello Everyone!

I am sorry I have not posted since July! I am getting stronger and feeling better.  I was able to check out a couple of stores today, Steinmart, Kohls, and Walmart. I was beat after Walmart because the last stop was actual grocery shopping. No fun. Grocery shopping is not my cup of tea.

I started of at Steinmart finding the coolest ring (pearl and silver bead shaker. ring), two pairs of sandals (7.94 a pair- on clearance!), and a blouse. The shaker ring is silly, cheap, and fun. Allow yourself silly thoughts, buys, finds, etc....it keeps you smiling:) Jerry found five blouses at Kohls (they cost anywhere from $4.00 to 8.00). Three of them were nicely decorated t-shirts and two were dressy blouses. They were having a 70% off sale! This is my kind of shopping.

My oldest son gifted money with rules: (I listened and enjoyed!)


Do not use the money on bills,
Spend the money on yourself and buy something that makes you smile,
Be kind to yourself and enjoy spending the money on yourself.

My birthday is tomorrow  and I am already having a great Friday the13th! I love having birthday's on Friday the 13th because they tend to turn out great.

After my shopping spree I came home and took a nice long nap. Tomorrow I am scheduled to visit my PCP. I think I have thyroid problems based on the symptoms I am experiencing. I will keep everyone updated. Please do not ignore any new symptoms you may be experiencing.


Today's lesson includes taking time out for yourself, splurging on occasion, pacing, resting, and paying attention to new symptoms.


I hope and pray you enjoy your day, pace yourself, rest, listen to your body, and splurge or do something goofy! Do whatever it takes to laugh, smile, love, and share your heart and experience with someone. Write to me and let me know what you are up to. I would love to hear about your day!

Soft hugs and warm wishes from Viv:)

Thank you Stela James,

I have been playing around with the design. I was getting kind of bored with the last one.

Sending you great luck and energy.
